Early morning Break and entry latest incident for downtown business owners

The latest in what is becoming a growing list of case files on Break and Entries in the community took place in the early hours of today, with Prince Rupert RCMP members called to attend an incident at a business on 1st Avenue West.

Prince Rupert Mounties received the call for service at 6 AM related to an activated alarm at the business and upon arrival they observed that a door had been damaged. 

As part of the initial phase of the investigation it was determined that some 200 dollars in cash had been stolen from the business cash register.

The Prince Rupert Identification Service is working on the case alongside the detachment investigators. As part of their work on the file, members are currently canvassing the immediate area for potential surveillance footage, witnesses or further evidence.

With the release of details related to the Wednesday morning incident, the RCMP have also outlined some background to a weekend break and enter to a business located on Sixth Avenue West, where it is estimated that 1,600 dollars had been stolen.

Investigators in that incident believe that the suspect had gained entry through  an unlocked door.

As part of their advisory of the two incidents, the Prince Rupert RCMP is asking that if your are a business or residence owner with a surveillance system in place, that you you ensure that the equipment is up to date and functioning properly.

As they continue their work on the recent files and those from the recent past, they ask that if you have any information to share, that you contact the local detachment at 250-624-2136

The case file notes from today can be reviewed from this information release from the Prince Rupert detachment.
